The Gregory House
Ranked #110 of 254 Nuwara Eliya B&B and Inns
Reviewed 28 February 2014

It seems our confirmed e-mail reservation got lost, so we were upgraded the first night and downgraded the second night, so we have stayed in the third floor and first floor.
The amenities in the room were as good as in minimum 4* hotel,mother mattresses are super.
But both of the rooms were a bit smelly.
One of the employees could nearly not speak a single word of English, the other couldn't help us with anything. We have asked him help to organize a tour to the tea plantations next day and he told us ok, a little bit later he would come back, but he never did. So we just went to another place, but he could have told us, that he cannot make any reservation.

We live in The UK and we have chosen Sri Lanka as our get away destination. Then we decided to stay in the hill capital of the country, I couldn't have been happier we choose the
The Gregory house.it is the best. Me and my missus stayed there for a long weekend in January. Its a location perfect hotel. The room was clean and comfortable easy to walk to and from all areas of interest.The housekeeping staff was excellent and always left extra towels or toiletries when we left a note. The breakfast was perfect and saved us time and money having to get something in a restaurant .Nuwara Eliya town within close proximity,The staff was friendly and helpful. The Gregory house exceeded our expectations and when we return we will be looking to stay there again.

The room was clean, spacious and comfortable, the location great, a one-minute walk to Gregory Lake. The staff are exceptionally helpful and friendly. Best of all is the food -- this is a wonderful example of Sri Lankan home cooking, absolutely delicious with the degree of spiciness suited to your taste. We recommend that you have a meal here even if you are staying elsewhere or are just passing through.

We spent one night at this hotel on January 14th, We had nine people and a little baby. I learned that the place has been acquired by the present owner recently, and have done a marvelous job in upgrading the facilities. The staff is good and well trained and at your disposal. Lunch and dinner were served well and was excellent. I do not hesitate to recommend this place for anyone who is looking for quality accommodation in NE. Great View of the lake and the adjoining hills.

We went there for 2 nights and were a family of 4 so we took 2 double rooms:

(++) everything looks new
(++) very clean rooms and bathrooms
(++) smells good in the rooms
(++) hot water comes fast and is abundant
(++) very comfortable beds with mosquito nets and clean bed sheets
(++) TV with cable in all the rooms
(++) good free wifi
(++) beautiful views from 1st and 3rd floor rooms
(++) reactive and attentive staff
(++) great food for dinner with choice of various meals. The chef is excellent, as good as in 4-5 stars hotels.

(-) 2nd floor bedroom: in front of kitchen and has no view (the room never smells of food and is very large though)
(-) 1st floor bedroom: the toilet is right outside the room, separated from the lobby by a transparent door (not the best for ladies)
(-) served artificial, cheap jam for breakfast but corrected it 2nd morning

My family stayed at The Gregory House for two nights & it was a well relaxed holiday. I should say the room is very clean & tidy, you'll not find such clean & comfortable coverlets anywhere else. The staff is very friendly & helpful. As it's located right up of the edge of the Gregory Lake you can here the water flow which relaxes your mind. Also should mention the beautiful scenery around from the room view. Nice food & reasonable rates altogether make a wonderful & complete holiday package. Definately would go back & highly recommend.

Room Tip: Stay on the top floor rooms the experience is best.

it has 4 beautiful spacious rooms with lovely beds and very comfortable mattresses and pillows.
There is a beautiful view of the lake from the room and the comforter in the bed is great for night as it does tend to get a bit chilly at night. There is no need for AC or a fan.
The place was very clean and tidy.
I had dinner there and the food was delicious. I had a breast of chicken with salad and a beer.
It is very reasonably priced and well worth the money. Easy access to the park by the lake or to go for a walk around the village.
The staff was very helpful. Only reason I did not give it a 5 star was because the wifi was sketchy at hte time, but I am positive that this is working by now.

Room Tip: All the rooms face the lake. I was on the top floor and it had a beautiful view of the lake
